    There is no such thing. If you are helping people more than they are helping you, perhaps in the past, they have helped you more. The same is true of everything, be it love/compassion, time or material possession.

    In order to not be taken advantage of you must not mentally allow yourself to become a victim. If you believe in being a victim you will always find experiences in which you play the role of a victim. You must consciously decide to only experience the good, positive and beneficial. This means avoid blindly trusting others physically, financially and emotionally.

    This is about learning to say no in the first place. Once that opportunity is gone, you have already lost control of the relationship and either a hard debate or permanent separation awaits you in order to get your freedom back. This is about the "silent deals" made in relationships, because the optimistic sides presuppose their counterparts will think and approve and go along with any idea or action they initiate. Of course, nobody's the same out of the 7 billion plus inhabitants of this earth and this assumption turns out to be dead wrong when one's husband or fiancé or mother or teacher is not happy with what one has brought to the table, even if it actually merits appreciation. Then follow first disappointment, then conflicts, then anger and then inevitably separation. Although this wisdom has been spreading out quite recently, the best way to go is to talk every possibility, every common and uncommon likes through in the beginning so "no muss, no fuss" later.

    If by "taking advantage" of you, you mean tricking you into supporting them in some way, perhaps all you have to do is to be less gullible. And I already have a hub on this: … -corrected

    If you mean simply that people ask you to do things that you don't want to, perhaps you just need to learn to say "no".

    Be assertive. Learn to say no. Learn how to say no respectfully and firmly.

    People taking advantage of you because you let them do so. Let them know that you're not that kind of person.
